1. When Christmas morn is dawning,
In humble faith I'd go
To Bethlehem, and see Him
That lies upon the straw
To Bethlehem, and see Him
That lies upon the straw.

2. How good of You, my Savior,
To come from Heav'n above!
O take away my sinning,
Protect me with Thy love.
O take away my sinning,
Protect me with Thy love.

3. Blest Jesus, how I Need Thee,
The children's dearest friend!
O may I never grieve Thee
With pain of sin again.
O may I never grieve Thee
With pain of sin again.

See notes in Version 1.
